Compliance

Our compliance mission - NICNAS is committed to developing and maintaining an effective and proactive compliance strategy to ensure the safe use of industrial chemicals in Australia.

 

Under the Industrial Chemicals (Notifications and Assessment) Act 1989 (the Act), NICNAS scientifically assesses industrial chemicals for their health and environmental effects and makes recommendations for safe use. The Act sets out regulatory obligations on importers, manufacturers and exporters of industrial chemicals, which in essence, forms the focus of the compliance program.

 

The compliance team is responsible for a number of NICNAS programs aimed at ensuring that manufacturers, importers and exporters of industrial chemicals are aware of and exercise their responsibilities under the Act.
